Grapevine Realty Client Testimonials

“SOLD in 1 week! That’s what our AD said after one week on Grapevine. We knew our house would sell but never thought it would sell so quickly. The service received from Grapevine was excellent and Lorraine along with her staff were so conscientious and always available ( even at 11 p.m. on one occassion!) Thank you to everyone at Grapevine for your wonderful service and for saving our family over $12K in real estate fees.”
-C. & R Vallee, Orleans

“Thank you for providing us with such exceptional professional services. You and your company made what could have been a very difficult process very easy for us. We will not hesitate to recommend Grapevine to our family, friends and neighbours. ”
-Dan and Liz Farrell, Kanata

“I am pleased to say that Grapevine provided us numerous calls and viewings within the first 10 days of our Listing, one of which transpired into the Sale of Our House!”
-John & Penny, Ottawa

“We have sold our property at the price we advertised with Grape Vine Home Marketing. We are going to tell our friends that Grape Vine really works and services provided by you are excellent. Thank you very much.”
-Lily L., Kanata

“I can”t say enough about Grapevine!!! Within 24 hours of listing the first couple to come through our home offered us full price. We didn’t have to hold our open house or show to anyone else. The registration process was simple. Grapevine works and buyers out there are using it!! In the first 24 hours we had over 200 hits on our page and continued to receive many hits after the “pending sale” noticed was posted. By the end of the week our page had received over 900 hits!! In fact we had a waiting list of people who wanted to see the house in the event that our sale didn’t go through! Thank you Grapevine for making the overwhelming task of selling a house so fast easy and stress-free!!”
-Jackie and Mike C., Crystal Beach

“Thank you Grapevine! Your website listing led to the sale of our home in only a week. We will use you again if we need to sell a home.”
-Brian P., Kanata

“Great service – it couldn’t have been easier for us! If you feel you have a home that can get good exposure, is well priced, and shows well, Grapevine is the way to go. The Grapevine staff were very helpful and always available for my questions. All in all it was a great experience for us and saved us a lot of MONEY!”
-Nick N., Ottawa

“We were very satisfied with the service we received from your company. Telephone calls were returned promptly and our questions were answered immediately and professionally. The website is informative and easy to navigate. We would recommend your company to anyone trying to sell their home. It saved us thousands.”
-Sherry & Mike B., Stittsville

“What I found excellent (besides the service) was the fact that I was able to organize and manage a house sale without having to come back to Ottawa (with the assistance of a lock box) and I was able to communicate with potential buyers and make sure everything was up to date as ‘virtually’ as possible.”
-Owen C., Riverside South

“We are very pleased with Grapevine and we have recommended it to all our friends. It saved us a great deal of money, was easy to use and very convenient. Your “owner” package gave us all the info we needed and was very well done! Thanks for all your help!”
-Anik G., Ottawa West

“We found Jeff to be responsive, informative and very reassuring, especially during the set-up phase. He really went the extra mile to get us up and running. I appreciated the care he took with photos, making sure to show the property at its best. Changes to on-line listings were made quickly and accurately. All of the basics were covered – Open House signs For Sale sign, internet listing, negotiation forms and marketing checklists.”
-Joanne C., Old Ottawa South

“I am very impressed with the quality of service provided by Grape Vine. Lorraine and her team have done a wonderful job marketing their services. As a result, finding a buyer for our home was quick and easy. During the slowest time of year we were able to sell our house and save over $15,000 in real estate commission. The marketing tools and negotiation worksheets provided made the whole process quick and simple. I highly recommend Grape Vine to any thinking of selling or purchasing a home.”
-Erin M., North Gower

“I’m very glad that I posted my ad to your website. Just in a word: it help me to save at least 12000$ !!! Excellent class A+ service. Fast reply with very good communication. Pleasure to deal with. Thanks a lot!”
– Sergei, Kanata

“I found Grapevine to be very helpful in the sale of my home. The exposure that my house received due to the website was great. It was also nice to be able to refer to it in newspaper ads instead of submitting a picture to the newspapers. The next time I sell my house I will definitely be giving them a call again.”
-Andrew T., Orleans

“Listing with Grapevine was definitely the right decision. We had no experience selling houses but the staff was quick to respond to our questions and made everything very simple. The website allowed us to continually track how many views we had for the listing – and we were pleasantly surprised! The feedback we received from those who came to open houses was very positive. Potential buyers appreciated that the listing price did not include hidden costs for real estate commissions so both the buyers and sellers were saving thousands of dollars. Thanks to grapevine we sold the house in less than one week!”
-George & Tara, Ottawa

“I was a bit leery not using a Real Estate Agent but since we had a lot of time coupled with the fact we saved over $12,000 than listing with an agent was well worth it. It took a little work and research on my part but Grapevine provided the necessary documents to make the entire process go smoothly. I will definitely recommend your company! Thanks again.”
-Sean and Nancy H., Barrhaven

“Selling a house for the first time, I found Grapevine to be extremely helpful. It was easy to go through the steps of selling my own house – the first offer was here in less than 48 hours and their prompt attention to every detail is commendable. I would highly recommend their service to anyone wanting to sell a house on their own.”
-Michelle M., Orleans

“Thank you Grapevine! The response to our open houses was remarkable and number of phone calls for private appointments was more than we could have expected. Grapevine is the obvious way to go when selling a house.”
-Mike & Shannon M., Barrhaven

“We bought our house on Grapevine–we sold our house on Grapevine. I highly recommend the service. The online listing looked totally professional and Grapevine was quick to list our Open House. All in all, a fantastic–and highly profitable–experience; we saved over 10K, money that would have been lost to real estate agents. Do it yourself and keep your money.”
-D.G., Neapean

“Grapevine provided an affordable, attractive, and increasingly popular website to publish our home for sale. We had the ad for 6 days from the start until the signed contract for the price we wanted. It was nice to be able to tell the agents who pressured us to get the listing that it was sold without their very expensive help.”
-Bill F., Ottawa

“Thanks for your help. Our unit had a buyer in 4 days! Nice pictures + good write up = completely satisfied.”
-William A., Ottawa South

“Do not be intimidated by the real estate process. Grapevine provides you with all the tools and advise to market and sell your home in an easy, stress-free and professional manner. We sold our waterfront home in the off-season (January) and saved ourselves $17,000 in real estate commission. A similar house down the street is still for sale after nine months on the market. ”
-Sue Scott, Constance Bay

“A heartfelt thank you to the great staff at Grapevine. The service was very prompt, courteous and accommodating and went beyond my expectations. I like to keep informed about my home and the market, so after having what I felt were two under-evaluations from real estate agents for my property, I decided to try and sell it myself. My house sold in under one month (during the “slow time”) and for considerably more than the “market experts” told me it would. I would recommend this service to any informed owner. ”
-Rob G., Orleans

“Success! I put up the For Sale sign and it attracted many.Your web page counter showed me the AMAZING amount of potential buyers. We sold in 3 weeks. Grapevine is definitely the way to go(if you like thousands and thousands of dollars in YOUR pocket) Fantastic!! We sold our home a lot faster than I thought and saved a bundle. Thanks for doing such a great service. ”
-Melanie B., Ottawa East
